    Those of you that are into lures,I don't know if you know there is a website on ebay called Tournament Tackle Australia. These people have the art of copying well known lures and selling them at half the price of the orginals. Worth a look if you don't know already.

    I bought two Suparpens. OK. Half price compared to the orginal price.

    I've bought a few topwater lures from them and they work, wasn't very impressed with the trebles though so changed them to Decoy.

    Yes, there all made in China. I change to at least one assist hook.

    I think I rather buy the real-deal sugapen, by the time you replace split rings and trebles or add assist hooks it works out roughly the same cost a an original sugapen anyway and the cheap chunese knock-offs dont have the same action.

    I have the orginal sugarpens and the copies. There is no difference. I know other pro fishing guys have bought the copies and there happy. Also the Wilson Fish Trap copies, you can't tell the difference. I only use assist hooks because they work.The trebles on the orginal sugarpens are filmsy. There also is a guy on ebay selling good quality assist hooks at the right price and they work.
